Precautionary Tales

Women* take countless precautions on a daily basis, sometimes not even consciously, to prevent themselves from being harassed or assaulted. What's worse, women still get blamed for not being more careful or for making "irresponsible" choices when awful things do happen.

I'm glad there's been more dialogue about this recently, and wanted to add to the lists I've seen shared with some of the precautions I personally take on a regular basis; I'm certain these are not unique to me. This is also in response to the fact that the 45th POTUS thinks it's a "scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of." 

*Not unique to women only...but definitely standard for many, many of us.
